“December 2011”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

Breakfast was not bad, but service has gone down hill. Waiter (male) very sour, seems stressed and unhappy. Breakfast cooked too fast, scrambled eggs dry and not done properly. This restaurant needs to get a grip on the attitude of the waiter, I know he's worked there for years. He seems to be working 3 times harder than anyone else there, and very unhappy. Meal always taste better when the service is better, but I believe they are too busy for the amount of help they have maybe? Not sure. Don't rush to make breakfast, most people don't expect it that fast, it was certainly fast but you could tell it was rushed!!

The boot and blade is a staple of the community. Nothing too fancy, but always good food with good service :)

“Crepes, a "hungry man's breakfast," fruit plates, hockey themed and more!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2011

Brunch and breakfast in Owen Sound? Group of 8 or more? a vegetarian in the group of meat eaters? This is your place! As a Tour Guide locally that ensures Happiness in others, I give a solid recommendation for the Boot and Blade! This is a great place to take a group with a variety of different tastes because the menu has a lot of options. I mentioned crepes in the Title of the review and I meant it; berry, chocolate, and fresh fruit....mmm...

For those getting a classic hungry man's breakfast, you usually get a choice between sausage, bacon, or back bacon, a healthy helping of homefries, toast, eggs the way you want them and some extra fixings. A big bonus on this menu is the Eggs Benny -"Eggs Benedict," The Boot makes a nice Benny!

Pricing is great, fresh fruit is possible, and to top it off the Hockey theme just takes it up a notch. Totally worth it!

“Great Food, Great Service, Great Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2011

Went with a family group of 6. 4 of them seniors!! Wait staff were amazing and very accomodating - even when people changed their minds. Food was delivered to table in reasonable amount of time and very tasty. Restrooms were clean!
Would definately go again!!
